Complainant’s housing issue resolved through direct assistance of federal and regional ombudsmen

High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova was approached by well-known Russian human rights activist Svetlana Gannushkina asking for assistance to G., a resident of Grozny.

The woman found herself in a difficult life situation: the dormitory she lived in was declared emergency. Therefore, she was forced to immediately move to another place of residence.
Having thoughtfully examined the situation, Tatiana Moskalkova appealed to Commissioner for Human Rights in the Chechen Republic Nurdi Nukhazhiev with a request for assistance to G.

The regional commissioner appealed to Grozny Mayor’s Office. As a result, the citizen was offered accommodation with better living conditions in another dormitory, which is closer to the city centre.

The woman moved to the housing provided. She was satisfied with the rooms in her new apartment. In addition, the Grozny Mayor’s Office has committed to repairing the housing as necessary.

Therefore, thanks to the cooperation of Tatiana Moskalkalkova and Nurdi Nukhazhiev, it was possible to promptly resolve the housing problem of the applicant.

In our state, the inviolability of private property is protected by law, but even it sometimes cannot stop scammers striving to cash in on someone’s grief. I was approached by a resident of the city of Shakhty, Rostov Region. Plotters misappropriated her home by forging of documents. The woman wrote to various authorities but could not achieve justice. The police initiated criminal proceedings, but the process was…

Perhaps one of the most difficult tasks in my work is to protect our compatriots abroad. Indeed, each country has its laws, its rules, and compromise can only be achieved through dialogue. I received an appeal from a citizen of the Russian Federation who married on the territory of Kyrgyzstan. The circumstances were such that the couple divorced (also outside our country)…
